A YouTube IRL stream was dramatically cut short by police on November 23, after they received a call that the streamer in question was in possession of a knife. 

IRL streaming has grown incredibly popular, with hundreds of thousands of viewers tuning in across various streaming platforms. One of the most appealing parts of IRL streaming is the idea that anything can happen.

This proved true again on November 23, when a YouTube live streamer known as ‘Sherwin’ was stopped by police while broadcasting, after it was called in that he was potentially in possession of a knife.

The streamer was in clown makeup, deeply resonant of Joaquin Phoenix’s ‘Joker’. The stream was just over 5 hours long, starting at 8pm and being stopped just after 1am on the morning of Saturday, November 23.

According to Sherwin’s YouTube channel, this was the first time he had been live in over 3 months, and the first time he had worn the clown make-up. 

While walking around London in the early hours of Saturday morning, the perspectives given on stream show a police car and two officers step towards the IRL streamer. The police officers approach Sherwin, asking what he’s doing. They then inform him that they’ve been told he has a knife, and will have to search him as a result.

“We’ve been called that you’ve possibly got a knife on you,” explained the male police officer, as the pair restrain Sherwin. 

“I don’t have a knife on me,” the streamer responded. “I don’t have a knife on me I can show you sir. Prank callers, sir.” 

Despite Sherwin’s protests, the police officers handcuff him and proceed to search for a potential knife, and the stream is cut short. It is not currently clear whether or not the streamer had a knife in his possession. 

According to the phone visible in the live stream, Sherwin was close to St John’s Wood High Street in central London. An affluent part of the English capital, it is close to Lords’ Cricket ground and Regent’s Park. 

It is also not clear whether the emergency call came from an online viewer, or a worried member of the public who saw a person in clown make-up walking around London in the middle of the night.

YouTube star Logan Paul has confirmed he and Josie Canseco are no longer together in an unplanned reveal on the Impaulsive podcast with Mike Majlak.

Logan and Josie have had a rocky relationship, separating in mid-February, and rekindling their romance in May. Logan previously described their relationship as “f**king serious. It’s pretty serious.”

But in recent weeks, fans had been speculating as to whether the pair had broken up after rumors circulated, prompted by the two unfollowing and then refollowing each other on Instagram.

But in the November 24 episode of Impaulsive, Logan confirmed the rumors were true. Mike Majlak, Logan, and George Janko were discussing the art of sliding into girls’ DMs, and appeared to accidentally land on the topic of Logan’s break-up with Josie.

After Mike briefly brought up the topic of why Logan would be chatting to girls, he hesitantly revealed that Josie was in fact his ex. “It might come off a little odd, these exchanges I’m having with women who aren’t my girlfriend…ex-girlfriend.”

The YouTuber added that he’d rather not reveal the details of their split, preferring to keep this part of his life private. “I’ve always really valued the privacy of my relationship because my life is already pretty public so I don’t feel like either Josie or myself needs to give an explanation if we don’t feel like it.”

The trio also discussed how hard it is when a relationship is in the public eye when fans make assumptions if either side is spotted out with other people. Logan said, “It is hard when you have a relationship that is so much in the public eye.

“You leave people guessing, like when I’m on a podcast and talking like I’m single, but I am,” before confirming that “It was a special time for both of our lives. It just didn’t end up working out.”

Logan also explained he was finding it hard to move on, “I’m not f***king around. I’m not even at flirt stage yet. There’s a hump to get over before I feel comfortable being back at it.”

In the meantime, Logan revealed that he’d bought an adorable puppy to focus all his love and attention on before trying to date again.
